It is common to predict structural dynamic design parameters due to the change of design parameter, but to predict the amount of changed design parameter where the mass and stiffness are being modified are rarely found in previous literature. In this study, the changed design parameter in a proportional damping system is predicted by using sensitivity coefficients and an iterative method. The sensitivity coefficients are determined from the changes in eigenvectors; these changes are due to modification. This method is applied to a three-story shear structure. To validate the prediction of the changed design parameter, the results are compared to the reanalysis results; both results are in good agreement.
